Feeding Toddlers Made Easy Podcast

Where you share real life struggles with your toddler and you get real life solutions.

I'm Kacie Barnes, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and mom of two. This podcast features short, impactful episodes that tell you exactly what you need to know to get your little ones to eat better and make feeding them easier on you.

Kacie sits and smiles to the right of the podcast title. She rests one hand on her lap. Her brown hair hangs down past her shoulders and she wears a cream-colored cowl-neck sweater with black pants.

57: When you and your partner disagree on parenting choices [feat. Dr. Cassidy Freitas]

It can feel like you get stuck when you and your partner or co-parent have different approaches or beliefs, especially when it comes to feeding your kids. Dr. Cassidy is a therapist who specializes in marriage and family therapy, and in this episode she provides a framework to use when you need help working through this in your own home. I personally am taking her tips for the next time I need to approach a tricky topic where my husband and I are not seeing eye to eye!

56: What to do when your toddler stops eating meat (and you want them to!)

 It’s so frustrating when your little one drops foods they used to love! And for some of you, like me and my oldest kiddo, they drop A LOT of foods in the toddler stage. This episode gives you practical tips on how you can get them eating meat again, and how to introduce it in a way that’s more enticing to picky toddlers!

Check in this recipe for pineapple chicken for an easy way to introduce meat using flavors your toddler is already familiar with.

55: [Special episode!] Must-Know Tips for Moving to a New House

This is my 3rd move as a mom, and it was by far the smoothest one yet!

53: Should You Use a Kids Snack Drawer?

Should you have a snack drawer for your young kids and should they be able to access snacks freely on their own? 

Pantry and cabinet organization is awesome, and the idea of your kids not bothering you every time they want a snack is definitely appealing. But the kids’ snack drawer can lead to even bigger problems that you don’t want to deal with (ugh, no more problems please!). Listen in to hear why I don’t love this solution, and what I’d recommend you do instead.
